    no cruising for me

    No one was a more avid cruiser than me but i have lost all appetite for it now. Even when or if cruising returns I am not sure i will be keen to go. Anyone else feel the same?

    Hi all
    The latest for Sailings from US ports.

    ‘The Centers for Disease Contol and Prevention (CDC) has extended its’ no-sail order for cruises, blocking cruise ships docked at US ports from operating until at least 1 October.

    Coronavirus cases have surged in Florida and California — where thousands of cruises would usually frequent. The CDC first put these restrictions in place in March. In the extension, which the public health authority announced today, it noted that between 1 March and 10 July, nearly 3,000 infections and 34 deaths were linked in cruise ships.

    Eighty percent of ships within US jurisdiction were affected by Covid-19 during that time frame, the CDC said.‘

    I’d go on a cruise tomorrow if it was safe to do so and as soon as it is the booking will commence. I’m more frightened of the flying than the cruising. The thought of being in a confined space for X amount of hours terrifies me.

    I’m moving my Oct Iona cruise to end of next year and will transfer again if still not safe. I don’t want to cruise wearing a mask onboard and not being able to socialise.
    We have moved our October Iona cruise to 2022! Hopefully Covid19 will be a bit more under control by then.

    Well that's the Fjords sorted until the end of the year! Just need to get the FCO to sort out their objections and Hurtigruten et al can sort out a couple of itineraries!

    If mask wearing becomes compulsory, I don't see how shops can enforce it, sadly.

    Refuse entry to anyone not wearing a mask? Big signs up. It is their shop not a public open space.

    I supposed that Hurtigruten's four UK cruises starting this September, were planned for UK pax to make use of the NHS in ports; as we've been told not to cruise, and as that means insurance will be an issue, they might get away with never being a few miles from shore.
    I see that Viking and Saga were interested in doing something similar, with UK pax.
    Carnival's putting out a feeler with an Aida cruise from Germany with Germans...

    Not compulsory in England yet. The govt. prefers to rely on peoples' good sense. What planet are they on? Didn't they see Bournemouth beach recently? I doubt one in ten in Waitrose this morning had masks on. Including staff.

    Despite the inconsistent messaging, I think RUK will move to compulsory mask wearing in shops.

    We have several scientists in the family and you don't want to start them om the subject.

    Hi Annie

    I hope they do. When lockdown occurred I was working part-time at a garden centre. I was furloughed and agreed to go back in May as long as I was happy with the safety precautions in place. ( I was also planning to retire early June, which they knew). I went back for 3 weeks and all precautions had been put in place. However, some of the public were unbelievable in that they refused to distance and were verbally abusive to till staff. I've been working long enough with the public to give back as good as I get, but found it very disheartening that even though people desperately wanted to go garden centres, they were prepared to disrespect and endanger staff by not adhering to guidelines. If mask wearing becomes compulsory, I don't see how shops can enforce it, sadly.

    Yes, there was in the beginning, as it seemed such an alien concept. I remember a lot of people thought that in the case of an accident, you could be trapped in the car by a seat belt. I think that the TV adverts saying " your child could kill you" or words to that effect, and then showed a parent driving and doing an emergency stop, and the child in back seat hurtling forward and pushing the parent against the windscreen were quite shocking. Those adverts were shown when back seat belt laws came into being.

    Hi Barb

    I have read similar comments. I would rather not wear a mask but I do.

    Was there not a similar backlash to wearing seat belts ?

    In town this morning I noticed it was people wearing masks who were ignoring distancing,,,they think wearing a mask makes them immune.

    I actually told one guy who almost pushed my out of the way to grab something of a shelf,,,”Excuse me...distance” he said “It’s OK I have a mask on”.

    Hi JC

    I have found that generally people wearing masks tend to stick to distancing rules, but sadly, there are exceptions. I actively avoid getting close to others in shops etc and walking to our local village.

    I am an avid cruiser . but am not cruising again until next May, and ony then if all precautions are put into place, I am travelling with my nine year old GD, so have to be sure we are not at risk. I ecpect a lot of restrictions will be put in place] but fingers crossed it will be safe to sail. We ae lucky we can spend the summer on the beaches , the weather never bothered us .I have also been looking at the round Britain cruises , the only problem now is insurance cover !! CG
